You came, you saw, you developed a great tan and even better memories (hopefully). Before you depart, stop in at any of these unique shops for Miami-themed souvenirs that the folks back home will love. The secret to beating post-vacation blues? Take a piece of Miami home with you to make wherever you are magical.

Guayaberas Etc.

Along with dominos, café con leche, and some of the tastiest cuisine served in the city, Hispanic immigrants brought the guayabera to Miami. A men’s shirt popular amongst Caribbean Hispanics, the piece is considered a wardrobe staple during Miami’s steamier months. Opened in 1978, family-owned Guayaberas Etc. is the country’s largest guayabera retailer and a popular shopping destination amongst locals. Offering everything from inexpensive polyester to high-end linen versions for men, women, and children, this spot outfits shoppers from all over in the local look.

Wynwood Letterpress

Inviting customers to “celebrate every random Tuesday,” Wynwood Letterpress will make your shopping experience special. Handmade cards emblazoned with the message “Greetings from Wynwood,” vintage-style motel key rings bearing the names of South Florida neighborhoods, and alligator-shaped clips are just a sampling of this paper goods supplier’s offerings.

Española Way

Need a vacation from your vacation? Tucked away in the Miami Beach area is Española Way, a pedestrian-friendly pocket dotted with European-style cafés, restaurants, and live entertainment. Known for being a gangster hub during Al Capone’s reign, the street’s new claim to fame is its weekend craft market. Featuring original work by Hispanic artists, traditional South American garb, and handmade jewelry, all of the finds at this outdoor fair boast a Latin flair befitting Miami.

Robert Is Here

When visiting South Florida, run, don’t walk, to locally beloved fruit stand Robert Is Here. It serves fresh exotic fruits as well as snacks and condiments made with produce grown on the family’s farms, providing a taste of South Florida no matter where you are in the world. Stocking Key Lime jelly, avocado honey, and smoked alligator jerky, the stand makes good on its invitation to “come taste the unusual.”

While visiting Miami, you’ve likely noticed our local bounty of art hung up in galleries, encased in museums, and covering just about every public wall in sight. Surprisingly, much of this work can be attributed to one man: David Le Batard, or as he’s known in the art world, Lebo. Creating the most stylish souvenirs the city has to offer, the South Florida native sells everything from art-printed snapbacks to stained-glass paintings at his Miami Beach store. Endorsed by local giants such as the Miami Heat and Gloria Estefan, Lebo’s work is a perfect fit for Magic City-loving shoppers.

Official Art Deco Gift Shop

Map View
Architecture enthusiasts will know South Beach is home to over 800 Art Deco structures, a legacy commemorated and defended by the Official Art Deco Gift Shop. A portion of the shop’s sales goes toward the preservation of the area’s architecture. That means by snagging retro jewelry, vintage home deéor, and original artwork from the shop, you are helping keep Miami magical.
